Reportage Photography – Tom & Elle
Wedding Photographer Essex
This is what it’s all about, all the love, all the joy, all the happiness, in one image. This is absolutely why people should get married, for the little moments where everything is right in the world.

If you asked most couples about their thoughts before the first dance, they would probably say they were anxious, nervous, possibly contemplating not doing it. But the above image for me sums up everything that is truly awesome about weddings and wedding photography. You become so completely lost in a moment, the emotion and reactions is so pure that you can’t hide how you feel, every part of you relaxes and in that split second you’re nothing but happy, click! a photographers dream.
Tom and Elle are awesome. Each of their images is full of such emotion, whether it’s epic smiles as the bridesmaids see the bride, or soon to be weds first glance, each image is pure undiluted happiness. It definitely helps when the light is so good, getting ready the dual aspect room produced a painterly quality to the images, mixed in with a diffused glow from an Autumnal sky and you’ve got contrast and a soft colour palette, ace! You’ll notice that the group photograph of all of the wedding guests is taken from an abnormally high viewpoint. This is because I was hoisted into the air (along with the videographer) on a hay bailer, mover..thing. I enjoy rock climbing…but I’m still afraid of heights, throw some leather soled shoes into the mix and a metal floor and you’ve got a recipe for angina.
Even the rain couldn’t dampen spirits post ceremony, everyone huddled together under whatever makeshift shelter they could find and still pulled out some awesome ‘hiyaaa’ ninja confetti throwing moves. I could ramble on for ages about what made this do so brilliant, but instead I’ll leave you here to kick back and enjoy the photographs. See you soon Essex, I’ll be back next year!
